Not a day goes by that you aren't missed. It seems like almost every day me and my fiance Tasha talk about favorite childhood memories we end up talking about our grandpas and the things they taught us, like working in the wood shop. I like to thank the two of you would have been good friends. I decided to move up to Ohio for a change of scenery and fell in love, now I'm living in West by-God Virginia. I remember back when we were kids you got me and Harley both kids shaving kits because we wanted to shave like you. There are so many things we all got to do together and I will always cherish those childhood memories. Cant wait till the day we can all catch up, but hopefully it's not too soon either. I love you Grandpa.

I'm sitting here watching a documentary on the Vietnam War. It got me thinking about you. I never asked the questions I should have asked. There's so much about you and your life I want to know. I kick myself for not being in touch with you more towards your end. But I want to thank you. Thank you for taking me in as a awful, bad child. Thank you for instilling your sense of respect, pride, honor, and above all, love into me. Thank you for all the nights you helped with my homework, the days you spent practicing baseball with me. Thank you for your life lessons. You were my absolute best friend I had in life. I wanted to be like you more than anything. I fall short sometimes, but I hope you're still proud of me. I wish you were here. I wish you could know my fiancée and that she could know you. I wish you could know Denise. She's such an amazing girl. I hope I can be half the mentor to her that you were to me. These past five years haven't been easy without you. The void left by your passing is nowhere near the size of the impact you left on me. I love you, good buddy. I hope I'll see you again some day.

Dad, it has been so long but never think I forgot you. It is stupid technology that kept me away, but enough of that. Soon another year will have passed without you. It has been lonely but probably more my fault than anything else. I really miss your guidance and friendship. Loving you as much- lol more- than ever. Love Always, Carrie

Happy Birthday Dad!!! I have been missing you a lot, wondering what your advice would be on things going on, I sure wish I knew because when I had your approval I always felt I had made the right decision. So speak to me in my dreams or when I am awake, you know I wouldn't be afraid!

Hi Mr. P. It is hard to believe it has been a year already. When I think back all I can do is thank you for being the dad that my dearest friend and her sisters loved so much. I also thank you for being my 2nd dad for so many years when we were young. It warms my heart now to look back at photos of you and my dad or of me you and Carrie. You were, without a doubt, a very unique and special man. Love Karrie R

I don't even know how to describe the hole that has been left in my life and the life of my children without you here. I know that the last few years were very rocky for us, but I pray that you knew always that I loved you same as always! You were a father that we were blessed to have and I am thankful that your grandchildren could see the type of man you were, not just hear from us. We are so lucky to have you up there watching over all of us now and guide us in the right direction. I love and miss you Daddy!

Oh Uncle Den, you were one of the few guys from my childhood that I wasn't scared of. You were a good guy! I loved your Saturday morning pancakes. You had a way of making all of us feel so special. You never once failed to tell me "Oh, you're so pretty." I miss you. Your passion for life, your passion for fishing, your passion for god! You always gave 100% to everything.

It has been a year today since you had to leave. I love you as much as ever and appreciate all you did for me. I ask myself, "What would Dad's advice be?" I try to follow it, but sometimes I still act like a kid. I see you everywhere, the banana tree's, my wall's lol, sitting under the tree, planting and sowing the garden, fixing the pens. I am so glad I have these memories. I have you close to my heart. Without you, I don't know how I would have struggled on. Thank you Daddy. You are sorely missed.
